Full step by step guide to reachs live person in customer service

1. If you are dialing from a landline, you need to dial “1” before the toll-free number of the company. For instance, if you need to dial 800-333-2358, you will actually dial 1-800-333-2358.

2. If you are in a hotel there is a number that you must dial in order to reach an outside line. In most of the cases this number is 9. Now in this case you are required to dial 9-1-800-333-2358.

3. If you are dialing from a standard cell phone there is no need to dial any number in front of the toll free number. You will just start dialing the number as you dial any other number. For instance you will dial just dial 800-333-2358 and press “Send.”

4. Long press the “Alt” key while dialing the letters of a toll-free “vanity” telephone number by using a cell phone with a QWERTY keyboard. You need to use the numeric keys in order to begin the toll-free number that will open the phone application, after that long press “Alt” as you spell out the remaining number (i.e. TABLES). When you are done press “send” and the letters will be converted to the appropriate numbers for dialing by the phone.


There are no long distance charges for dialing a toll-free number. But the appropriate numbers of minutes are deducted from your data plan.
